KV^NING STAR. Local Intelligence. A Deligbtpil Trip?Tbb Fisbiko Sborx? Th k Uraad Plasc ?had DihuBb at tbb Wbitb Uocsk ?A number of oar prominent citisens participated, yesterd ty, in the festivi tiei attending tbe annuil opening of tbe W hite House Pavillion?a delightful summer resort on the western hank of the Potomac, about twenty miles distant from Washington. The party went down in the line stealner Ihomss CcHyer, 'un^er the command of Captain Ged ney,) which had been chartered for the occa sion, and wai gaily docortied with national flags. Tbe weather was moat propitious?a fairer or lovelier day never dawned, to glad den the heart of a man, or to brighten the faoe of nature. Oar own limpid and beaatiful Potomac was calm and tranquil as tbe sleep of innocence, ruffled only by the sporting jtaveleta that were chased upon its bosom by gentle and *ool'ng aephjrs. xne company reached the White House about noon, after a delightful run of two hours, daring which an abundance of good thing* were partaken of on the boat, and kindly and social sentiments exchanged by the joyous participants in tbe festivities Shortly after landing, the party were gratified by witnees ing a seine-haul?upwards of twenty-five thou sand herring and three hundred shad, besides innumerable 44 smaller fry." having been gathered in by the hardy fishermen at one iwpop of the immense seine This, though oonsidered a good haul at this baekward sea son. is by no means a fair sample of the yield of that watery mine of wealth. A hundred thousand herring and two thousand shad are frequently caaghtby one haul at this landing There are now seventy five hands employed at this shore under the direction of Col Burke. At 2* o'clock dinner was announced, and the eompany, with appetites whetted by the pare and refreshing air, wended their way to the large dining hall, where a scene was pre sented which woald have pleased and gratified the most fastidious or epicurean taste. The tables were graced with all the luxuries and delicacies of the season, both xpirttual and material, prominent among which were dis played, in all their freshness and richness, the ever-memorable and never-to-bo- forgot ten Plank Shad ' And, oh ! they were de licious ! Their sweet fumes seem yet to linger in our olfactories, and are as balm to the hap py recollections of that joyous dinner-scene : Af er the party had done ample justice to the bounteous repast, Capt L M. Powell, who was seated at the head of the table, arose and stated that at the instance of several friends, and in accordance with his own feelings, he would propose a sentiment in honor of their old and esteemed friend, Philip Otterb^ck, sr., Esq.. who sat near him. The gallant Captain, after pronouncing a glowing eulogium upon his venerable frierd, offered a toast compli mentary to him, which was received with " all the honors." and greeted with hearty cheers By general req:est, Mr. F. McNerhany was called upon to respond in behalf of Mr. Otter, hack, which he did, offering, in conclusion, a toast, which called oat Mr Edgar Snowden, Editor of the Alexandria Qaiette. Mr. 6 , after a brief response, offered a sentiment oomplimentary to Col. Jno A. Washington, (a descendant of the illustrious father of bis country.) who briefly returned thanks. Mr Randolph Coyle propored tbe health of the gentleman (as he is a modest man we omit his name) who on a former occasion ate srvtn flank-d shad without rising from the table, and deserved to have his name inscribed in letters oi gold upon tbe imperishable tablet of fame! The toast was drank with an bounded enthusiasm. At this poin4 the company arose, and after spending an hour or two in various amuse ments. shortly before sunset turned homeward, reaching the Washington wharf about eight o'clock, and bearing with them tbe most pleas ing and agreeable recollections of a 1 the incu dents of the day. Qreat oredit is due to the gentlemanly les sees of the Pavilion, and especially to Mr. Ot terback, for tbe elegant entertainment pro vided on this interesting occasion, and for the unexceptionable manner in which the whole affair was conducted. Dbatb op Job* Am, ? We are sincerely pained to learn that our esteemed fellow citi ?en. Mr. John Agg, late a clerk in the Post Office Department, died this morning at 9 a m , at his residence, near tbe Naval Asylum, nerth of the city Mr. Agg was a native of England, and first came to this country, seme twenty-five or thirty years ago. as a theatrical manager. Ilis profession was literary, and during a considerable portion of his residence among us, he was connected with the press, as editor of the National Journal, formerly pub lished in this city, and. subsequently, as Con gressional reporter and correspondent He was a gentleman of exalted personal obaracter and rare accomplishments from books, and possessed fine horticultural taste, shedding light on scciey wherever he was well known Bis death will be deeply regretted by a large eircle of friends in and around Washington. His funeral will take place to morrow after noon, at 4 p. m , from his late residence. Tbi Eclipsb?Thousands of our residents were gratified, last night, with a view of the occultation of the planet Venus; persons in tome parts of the city standing in crowds to witness the oelestial spectacle, ihe predic tions of the astronomers proved true. In Baltimore, according to the Amerioan of that eity, the phenomenon could only be seen from elevated positions, hut this was not the ease in Washington. It was observable from the streets, though the moon and Venus were near the horison. The planet hid itself under the dark edge of tbe moon a few min ntee before nine o'olock: the one, as it ap peared, blending with the other; but the two, after the lapse of twenty minutes, were again visible in the heavens. It was a ealm, beau tiful night; tbe weather pleasant and May like; and the spectacle was in a high degroe interesting to all who witnessed the phenome non. Mbtropolitab Mbcba.ucs Ijcstitctx ?

Ah Alibi ?A little fellow was knocked in the head, several days ago, by a colored lad After tbe former had sufficiently recovered from his injuries to walk out. he described the assailant to off^er Wise, aocompanying the last named to one of the brickyards, and iden tifying him in the person of John Carroll, who, he said, just before the attack, was driving a certain horse, which was pointed out. Mr. Richards, the proprietor, swore that the horse was not only in the stable all that day, but that Carroll was at work in the yard Carroll has a brother employed at ano'ber brickyard, who resembles him very closely, and also drivee a horse bearing a resemblance to that of Mr. Richards Bat the injured boy de elared that John was the person who hsd as ?aulted him. As an alibi was proved, the case was promptly dismissed Frcit ?Our farmers and gardeners in the District, and the sdj >i ni ng counties of Maryland and Virginia, are rejoicing at the prospect of a fiae fruit eeasDn, believing that unless some unusaal change should occur in the season, there will be a plentiful yield. We learned from a gentleman, who has bat recently ar rived in ibis oity, that when he reached his home in Tennessee, after the session of the late Congress, be foacd tbe peach trees in blocan and the ground frtsen hard and it con tinued to freese for several days after. The fear is that the fruit in that region is destroyed ' by the frost. We hope the yield will be suf ficient in our neighborhood. Otjii Ptblic Scaooi. Horns as thit a*b.? Ths following extract* are taken from t printed report of the Trustees of Public Sohoola which wu laid on the tablet of the members of the City Councils on Monday evening The report shows the oondition of the sohool houses as tkep art. We shell to-morrow print an ab stract of a report presented by the Trustees to the Conceits on the same evening, in which they propose to oorrect some of the evils of the present system of renting cellars for school room* by the purchase of Morrison's well known bnilding on K. street, whioh is well adapted for school purposes 1 "In regard to these apartments and build ings, [occupiei as school hou?es in this city,] it may be laid, in general, and subject to the exceptions herein made, that they are ill adap ed to the purposes for which they are need; they are deficient in space for the ac commodation of the pupils and teachers; in facilities fer ventilation; in suitable means for the admission of air and light; and they ire so oontracted, as necessarily to oompel teachers and pupils to breathe a vitiated at* moephere. thereby inducing weariness, lan I guor. headache, nervous irritability, and pro moting the development of pulmonary and . other diseases. In many instanoes which have been brought to the notice of the Trustees, pupils have suffered from serious illness, the citu<e of which might be traocd to the publio school rooms. Some of the sohool rooms are imperfectly warmed, badly located, difficult of approach, have little or no ground exoept the publio street for the recreation of the pupils, or for the necessary outbuildings, and are un attractive, if not repulsive, in their external appearance ; and furnished with but little ap paratus and With but few of the instruments and means of instruction, Whioh almost every where are considered indispensable in well regulated and well provided school rooms." ***** " In the First District all the sohool apart ments are rented with the exception of one old building, which was formerly Jefferson's stable, but now is used, by permission of the Government, m a school-room Its condition has been brought so often to the notice of the Councils, and its unsuitableness is so apparent that any further remarks upon it are consid ered unnecessary. The Trustees earnestly renew the recommendation, which has so often been made, that immediate steps be taken to provide for the wants of this District, either by the purchase or by the erection of a suitable school building. " In the Second District the sobool-bouse in Judiciary Square is the property of the oity. It was o iginally designed to accommodate two Teachors and one hundred and twenty pupils, it is actually eocupied by four Teachers and two hundred and twenty nine pupils." * * * * * " In the Third District the building oocupied by the Male Department of the District School is the property ot the city. It was originally designed for one Teacher and about sixty pu pils, it is actually occupied by two Teachers, and the number of pupils is limited to one hundred and forty, ihe accommodations are so poor that only one hundred and eighteen are members of the school at the present time" * * * * "Ten Teachers, and about seven hundred pupils, which is the limited number, are placed in five basements of Churches, which, with one or two exceptions, are, in part, below the surface of the ground, and may not im properly be called cellars ; they are more or less damp, generally with low ceilings, dimly lighted, and badly ventilated, and with no separate play grounds for the two sexes; much inconvenience is experienced from hearing the school exercises and recitations by two Teach ers, at the same time, in one small apartment. Nice of the remaining schools are kept in separate rooms, which generally have the characteristics of those that have been already mentioned." * * * * "ihe expense of the system of renting school rooms is a large item, and one whicn is annually growing larger, while at the same time the difficulty of obtaining rooms, even of the indifferent character which has been de scribed, is constantly increasing '? The amount appropriated the present year for rent of rooms is $ 1.675, which ii the in terest of more than $27,000 To this must be added the expenses incurred by frequent re movals from one place to another, also the losses arising from uot having, in many cases proper out-bou^es for tho security of wood and coal, and the expenses incurred by the care of many small ccjooI bouses, instead of a few large ones; much time is also lost by Teachers and pupils in consequence of sick ness occasioned by breathing, for a long pe riod. impure air. or by colds and other diseases induced r>y exposure to the wet and mud through they are sometimes obliged to pass, in order to reach their respective schools ' In the opinion of the Trustees, the pres ent mode of renting school rooms has nothing to recommend it on the score of economy, health, or public convenience." * * * ' The Trus'ess accordingly renew the recom mendation made by a Committee of the Com mon Council in lt>42, which the experience of twelve years has proved to have been eminent ly wide and judicious, and whioh was referred to with commendation, in the last annual re port of the Ik/ard, in respect to the expedien cy of commencing immediately the erection of substantial school houses, in those parts of the city in whiah the most pressing necessity for them exist. "The Trustees, in conclnsion, beg leave to re fer to former reports of the Board on this sub jeot, and more especially, to the annual mes sage of the Mayor, presented to the Councils in month of Ootober last." The White House Pavillios.?We yes terday noticed workmen busily engaged in cutting dowu the high bank on the western and the woods on the southern side of the pa vi!lion,so as to give freer scope to the southerly and westerly winds, and thus render more airy and pleasant this summer resort.

The Slajideb 8cit?Wm. T. Dove against' J. H. McB!air?was continued to-day fj The following named witnesses have been examined for the plaintiff: Charles H Win, der. Rev. Charles A Davis W. P Moran, W. B Lee, James Young, Charles E Davis John H. Eaton, and A. Q Southall. 'ihe evidence was with reference to the pro pagation of the alleged slander by Mr. McBlair. The testimony for the plaintiff has been brought to a close; and that for the defence will probrbly be oommenced this afternoon. Fibe Mo sic.?The store of our next door neighbors, Hilbus 1 Hits, is often occupied as a free concert-room, during the day, for the private accommodation and gratification of the lovers of instrumental harmony. Yester day. Mr. Ahrend, than whom there is not, perhaps, a more accomplished performer on the violincello. together with M il Boye, the pianist, and Mr. Palmer (formerly known as Robert Heller) whose skill on the last named instrument is a matter of notoriety, gave a ? charming impromptu concert at Hil bus <k Hi'i's music saloon. ?? Stealing Eggs?Joe Williams, a colored boy was taken to the guard house last night by several gentlemen, who arrested hioa tor obtaining at various times, one hundred dosen eggs from John L Wilson. He pretended that he was sent from the mail boat for the eggs, asking for twenty-five dosen at a time. The last lot of eggs was reoovered; but Mr. Wilson is still the loser of seventy-five dosen Williams was examined this morning before Captain Birch, who sent him to jail for trial at the Criminal Court.
